This week The Wedding Community’s product of the week is Mineral Lip Colour by Vani-T.
I remember when I got married I went to lots of different cosmetic counters and tried a range of products in different shades. In the end I went with a beautiful looking Clinic long-lasting lip colour with gloss, but what I didn’t know was that the gloss would soon dry out and I was left with very dry lips. I remember licking my lips throughout the ceremony (which looks great in the pictures!).
When choosing your new lip colour, bear in mind that this is something you will hopefully be wearing all day, throughout the service, pictures, drinks, wedding breakfast and more drinks. Make sure you choose a colour that suits your skin tone and don’t go for something just because you think it will stand out in the pictures. My advice (from experience) is make sure you have a nice moisturising lip colour that will not dry out too quickly.
Australian beauty brand Vani-T has recently launched their stunning range of fabulous diamante encrusted lipsticks, and having tried these Mineral Lip Colours by Vani-T I am very impressed. Infused with vitamin E, coconut oil and aloe extract, the mineral lip colours glide on with a rich and creamy texture. The lipstick can be applied straight from the stick or with a lip brush to build up the shade. These mineral lip colours are not slippery and greasy like some others I have worn in the past, and are made with natural and organic ingredients which Vani-T claim make them long lasting, however you will probably need to reapply throughout the day depending on how many times your photographer asks you to kiss your new husband!
Available in 12 different shades, there is a colour to suit every glam goddess! From dusty rose and apricots to pinks and reds, you’ll want to have them all! If you are looking for something bold, the shade ‘Scandal’ would be perfect as this is a vivid red, but if you are looking for a more subtle, natural shade, ‘Gossip’ will work well. I am quite pale skinned and ‘Gossip’ is my colour.
The lipsticks come beautifully packaged in metallic peach cardboard boxes and have cut-outs on the bottom so you can view the shade. Vani-T says these are diamante encrusted, but they are in fact really large diamante-style plastic squares, but they definitely have the bling effect!
Vani-T Mineral Lip Colours are available from salons nationwide at a RRP of £23.25, so they compare well to other leading cosmetic brands. It’s your wedding, so why not treat yourself to a new lippy!
